Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

On this page you will find information added throughout the year about the learning taking place in Year 5.

January 2021

Year 5 have been thinking about authorial strategies such as language and sentence choices to create an atmosphere within their writing. I’m sure, like us, you have been incredibly impressed with the level of emotion conveyed through the diary entries the children have written.

Year 5 writing example

In Maths, Year 5 have been focusing on solving money problems. They have had to think of some real life problems that everyone has to think about while shopping.

They have all done a great job at explaining their answers and using their calculations to support their ideas.

 

Year 5 have embraced being scientists this week. Everyone, whether at home or in school,  has started to think about an experiment to find the best location to place either a salt or sugar water solution for the quickest evaporation.

In true scientist fashion, the children have had to consider the design of their experiment in order to make it a fair test.

We are very excited to see their results.

 

In Year 5, we have been reading ‘A Place Called Perfect’ where the Archer brothers are stealing the imaginations of the people of Perfect to make them susceptible to following the rules. This is an example of a response to the book with a beautifully depicted version of a dream jar. You can also see a comparison between the people of Perfect and those of No-Man’s-Land. We have really enjoyed reading and discussing the story!
